Have you ever just wanted cake and couldn't (or wouldn't) because you can't cook? Well if you can measure a table spoon and you have a microwave, then you can make cake! This easy cake is usually prepared and made in about 5 minutes (hence, the name). It tastes like any other cake, and this is why I like it so much.

Surprise! Not a magic trick! Same person. Same jacket. Different subject!

If you don't want vannila cake, you can make chocolate, too (I personally think the chocolate tastes better). Instead of a big splash of vanilla at the end you will want to mix 2 table spoons of coco powder with the flour and sugar. and instead of that big splash at the end, just put a small splash. It needs that flavor, still.

Add a little icing and you have cake!

    Being the spelling freak I am, I noticed you wrote "coco powder" instead of "cocoa". However... in spanish, coco = coconut. A coconut cake? Yummy!

    Tastes good and damn fast - for those times spent staring at the fridge looking for food! - By vanilla flavour do you use vanilla extract?

    I don't think it matters. Just add a splash at the end. No a huge one, but good enough to give it flavor. Best part about this cake . . . You don't really have to be a cook to make this! Please vote! I appreciate this feedback!

    I once made a bet that I could make a lunch from scratch in ten minutes, including appetizer, main, and dessert. This would have been very useful for the dessert part. Nice instructable.

    P.S. I ended up making english muffin pizzas with fruit salad and a milkshake.

    Thank you! I find it fast and easy! Next time you're hungry and you think there's nothing to eat, make cake. 5 minute cake that is! Glad you like it.
